Dick Vitale Gala

The 19th annual Dick Vitale Gala, benefiting the V Foundation, will be held May 3, 2024, at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota, Florida.

The honorees will be:

  • Derek Jeter, Baseball Hall of Fame
  • Jeff Gordon, NASCAR Hall of Fame
  • Rick Barnes, Tennessee Men’s Head Basketball Coach

The John Saunders Courage Award will go to Nikki McCray, Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. The Dick Vitale Spirit Award will go to Jim Kelly, Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The mission of the Dick Vitale Gala is to raise awareness of the inspiring stories of children who have faced cancer and raise funds for the V Foundation’s Dick Vitale Pediatric Cancer Research Fund. To date, the V Foundation has awarded almost $66.7 million to pediatric cancer research. And cancer research is saving lives. Today, 85% of children with cancer now survive 5 years or more, a huge increase from the mid-1970’s when it was 58%.

While there is more work to do, there is victory in progress.
